I came across an interesting news piece that may be of interest:


www.theguardian.com...


A seemingly-psychic Twitter account has appeared, apparently predicting Brexit, the Trump presidency and Beyoncé’s baby news.


Here is the link to the twitter account in question:

https:/www.twitter.com/beyoncefan666

Personally I am not sure what to make of it. I can understand that the person may have had some inside info that makes the Beyonce pregnancy prediction plausible, but Brexit and trump as well is a bit eerie, especially the exact percentage that the Brexit result was.

Do you think we have another John Titor type on our hands pretending be someone they are not? Or do we have someone who is potentially the real deal and somehow knows something about the future that we don't?

I think when you "predict" the outcome of something that has only so many variables it actually falls under logical reasoning and/or statistical analysis.

Now, to me, predicting something would happen would have predicted that dt would have run for and won the presidency years(if not a decade) before it was even known he'd run.

Is that real? There has to be something about it that is fabricated.


That is too ridiculously bizarre to be real. I don't even.....

I agree. I just think it is a little weird. Maybe this person just got lucky. It is also odd this person only starting tweeting from June just before the UK eu referendum.

I think the article explains it all.

It would be nice to think a John Titor type was tweeting but I suspect a real life time traveller would choose a more interesting Twitter handle than, Beyoncefan666, to predict the future with.

Scally 😉

Who knows, maybe Beyonce still has some fans in the future.

Agreed, but can't help but think it just seems ridiculously odd and slightly creepy...

make a private account
type a bunch of things coming up that may/may not happen
Do this for about 6ish months
go back, delete all things that didn't happen
reset twitter account to reflect only the number of tweets you did
set to public...watch the people flip out.

Yes...this.

Dates can be changed on Twitter.

I don't put much stock in twitter.

Not after fake accounts, and 12,000 tweets that call for assassination of the current president.

Sounds legit.

Maury Povich level forecasting.

Excellent Reasoning


Now is this technically possible to do this with a twitter account?
You have not answered the why but you may have answered the how.

There is always the possibility of a person inside Twitter having a bit of fun.

The user changing the posted date? I'd like to see that demonstrated.
